I might be in a different key on Walker's Collectibles. I think it might need a capo at the 2nd fret. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Verse]
  G
You know a mile around the bend on the Ohio
 F                           C  G   C
Coming up the river for the Sunday show
           G
There's a tuba and a banjo and a steam calliope
 F                         C   G     C
Way in the back there's a big paddle wheel

[Chorus]
          G                            C
What a thrill it musta been, playing Dixie for the folks
D                             C        G
Up and down the river on the first showboat
                                       C
What a thrill it musta been, playing Dixie for the folks
D                             C        G
Up and down the river on the first showboat

[Verse]
  G
Momma took the kids and papa took the lunch
 F                               C       G       C
The kids took the bells and the whiskey took the drunks
  G
But the biggest thrill of all, you know it had to be
 F                               C G     C
Was sitting up front playing steam calliope

[Chorus]
  G
Well there's magic in the air, they're fiddlin the rhymes
 F                        C    G C
It's slow and easy in the summertime
  G
Yeah, but who'd of ever thought, the day would come to be
 F                                        C      G       C
Where there's oil on the waters where the rivers used to be

[Chorus]
  G
Yeah a mile around the bend on the Ohio
 F                          C    G C
Coming up the river for the Sunday show

[Chorus]
